I am sharing 2 cards we made for stampers club this month. This first card is one I made at Connie's Monthly Meeting, she is my 2nd upline and has a monthly meeting about 45 mins from my house...I try and made it each month. I CASEd this and just changed the Greeting. I borrowed the stamp set, Christmas Lodge cause, **GASP** I don't own it!! Can you believe it??? My friend, Joyce Clark loaned me the set so I could recreate it. To make the glittery trees, you stamp your image on white card stock and then place an adhesive sheet cut to the same size, over it, first pulling off the the printed liner, then place exactly (or as close as possible) over your stamped image piece, press with your hand or bone folder, then peel the other layer off the adhesive sheet. Now be careful, it is really sticky!!! then sprinkle Dazzling Diamonds over the whole image. That's it, your done! I ran the crumbcake card thru the Big Shot with the woodgrain embossing folder, Stamped Merry Christmas in versa mark ink and embossed with white embossing powder and heat set. To make the window frame, it is a little tricky. I made a template with some thin chipboard (actually a cereal box works well) and measured where to punch the windows with the 1 3/8" square punch. Adhere the window pane with snail and then the whole panel with dimensionals to the card. I tied a bow using the red seam binding and attach to card with a mini glue dot.
This 2nd card is my winter birthday card. I CASEd it from one I had seen on Stampers' Connection, just one of the benefits to being a Stampin' Up! Demonstrator....It's a HUGE resource for demonstrators ALL OVER THE WORLD!!!
The card is Baja Breeze, my favorite color! I paired it with Early Espresso, card stock and ink. I inked the image from Serene Silhouettes with Baja Breeze ink and removed the ink on the birds with a Q-tip and using my Early Espresso marker, I colored in the birds and touched some of the branches with the marker too. Don't you just LOVE how Stampin' Up! color coordinates everything!!
I put the card layers together using snail and the stamped image and layer behind it, I popped up using Dimensionals....a staple in my Stamp room. I panic if I only have one package in my stamp room. I used black 3/8" taffeta ribbon and tied a knot around the panel with Subtles DSP and stamped Happy Birthday in Early Espresso ink. After the card was completely assembled, I coated the branches with Dazzling Details and it looks just like a tree covered in ice.
